Turner's Service Co. announces federal regulations are being implemented to ensure the efficiency of water heaters and these in turn pose challenges upon the residents of Northern Viginia especially in terms of costs.
According to reports, the revised regulations could also mean increased costs for homeowners. Water heaters are being required to be cost-saving, more efficient, and greener as proposed by the Department of Energy. If this is implemented properly, almost $365 could be saved annually. The entire purpose of the regulation is to reduce bills every month since the energy consumption is also being reduced.
However, the cost upfront may be a steep amount for some homeowners. It might also be inconvenient for some sizes of heaters and those with newer technologies. Basically, when a water heater dies, the replacement unit itself will cost a fortune, not to mention the installation service a homeowner has to avail. The water heaters that the new regulations are proposing are much taller and wider so consequently, they would also mean bigger costs. Aside from the huge cost, another problem that could arise is how these heaters would fit in small spaces. Some homeowners may need to resort to having construction work so these heaters could fit.
According to Proffitt, a known authority when it comes to heaters, initial costs for heaters abiding by the law may mean double or even more costs than ordinary ones. This could mean hundreds and even thousands of dollars and these are just estimates since the installation of new heaters may vary per home. Currently, the old model of heaters is just being made available until the middle of April. Basically, there’s no sense anymore in purchasing these as the government would require a change of heater real soon.
Be prepared for the switch by contacting a trusted water heater service provider now. Have the rates estimated to prepare for how much the costs would be. It may not be certain as of now whether this regulation would be beneficial but surely, everybody will see in the next days to come.
